comment How to watch videos in Amazon Prime Instant Video?
chmod 777 ~/.adobe/Flash_Player/* is probably all you really need to do.

comment When attempting upgrade from 13.10 to 14.04 upgrade halted at “aborting samba-libs preinst”
/usr/share/php/Archive/Tar.php can't open tgz files because line 734 is returning "false" when checking for gzopen. Google has a 5 year old bug (still open) that may be related: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/php5/+bug/451405 The solution is to find and replace the following in Tar.php: * Replace 'gzopen' with 'gzopen64' * Replace 'gzseek' with 'gzseek64' * Replace 'gztell' with 'gztell64'
